Re: Permissions in Regedit
CHANGE PERMISSIONS REGISTRY KEY
This is very bad advice. The people who make that MP3 player need to make
their program compatible with Vista instead of telling people to do
something that will compromise the security of their system.
The reason is that changing permissions on a registry key that is in a part
of the registry which controls system wide settings can open your system to
infection from any malicious program.
As long as you understand the possible consequences, here is how to proceed.
Go to Start and type regedit.exe and in the results, right click
regedit.exe and select the Run As Administrator option.
In regedit, navigate to that location.
Right click the 'USB' key and select 'Permissions'. In the top 'Group or
user names' section, select 'Everyone'. In the lower 'Permissions for
Everyone' section place a check mark in the Full Control / Allow' checkbox.
Click Apply / OK and exit the registry editor.
